Customer Question

my 14 week old puppy may have gotten some terro ant bait. He bit the plastic but most of the bait was dried and on the floor. It was an older trap. However, his stomach is making noises like a growling sound. I have read on line that it is not dangerous and to do nothing I just want to make sure

Friend, the active ingredient in Terro Ant bait has a very wide safety margin in dogs; at worst you may see some mild vomiting or diarrhea otherwise your puppy will be fine; no need to be concern.

As far as the growling sound in the gastrointestinal tract, this can be the result of gas and the smooth muscle contraction in the intestines; I would go ahead and feed him, usually after they eat the sounds will get better.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
